Sherburne Celebrates Winterfest 2011

February 5, 2010

For more than seventeen years the Friends of Sherburne and staff of Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge have celebrated winter together with a day-long event filled with fun and educational activities for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages.

Winterfest 2011 continued this tradition with a huge outpouring of support from volunteers and Refuge staff who provided everything a snow adventurer could need: snowshoes, instruction, interpretive sleigh rides through rare oak savanna and a toasty camp fire and warm treat of hot cocoa.

Audubon Center of the North Woods Wildlife Coordinator Jeff Tyson introduced some of his feathered friends to visitors with a live bird presentation, while others learned the secrets of photography from nature photographer Dave Zosel. Visitors also celebrated the birthday of the National Wildlife Refuge System!
